The Bear & Ragged Staff in Cumnor is a world away from the Newbury & Swindon roads that stream past only a mile from its door. The heart of the pub is a glorious Tudor beauty. Ancient fireplaces, flagstone floors, and mullioned windows with carved lintels make the bar one of the finest anywhere. A comfortable eatery, conservatory, and South-facing terrace provide spaces for every mood – and winding stairs lead to cosy bedrooms with old oak doorways and beamed ceilings.

    20£ for a roast dinner that simply is not worth this money. 2 thin slices of beef 2 half sticks of root vegetable, an over done Yorkshire pudding and the bones of 1 decent size roast potato chopped into 3 Perhaps a 3pm sitting was the issue? Really disappointing. If the price point was 15£ for the plate we had it would have been more palatable. Not comparable to other roasts locally in terms of quality. The sting in the tail is the plate costs 20£ so 3 people spend 60£ before you even order your small £6.50 side of cauliflower and cheese… Change the price point or the quality of the food on the plate

    Very warm and cosy. Food was good, not amazing. I struggle to pay £7.50 for a slice of cake for desert that wasn’t great. Ate it though and never complain, so that’s my fault!
